Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships 2024/2025 (Funded)

The Academy offers Research Fellowships each year to outstanding early-career researchers to support them to become future research leaders in engineering.

 The scheme’s objectives are to:

  • support the best early-career researchers in establishing their independence and international reputation
  • provide long-term support enabling the pursuit of an ambitious programme of engineering research and impact
  • develop ambassadors for the Academy and advocates for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines.


  • The Academy welcomes applications from early-career researchers worldwide who have been awarded their PhD in the last four years. The scheme is funded by the Department for  Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) and provides funding for five years. Each application is capped at a maximum contribution from the Academy of £625,000 over the five-year period, at 80% of full economic costs. Research Fellowships must be held at a UK higher education institution/university or at a UK research organisation eligible to receive UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funding.

In addition to the direct financial support, the scheme benefits include:

  • Mentoring support from an Academy Fellow to offer advice on research and career development.
  • Reduction of teaching and administrative duties to dedicate time to research.
  • Training and additional funding opportunities.
  • Networking opportunities with other Research Fellows and Academy Fellows.
  • An opportunity to establish a strong research track record which will improve the chances of securing additional funding and expanding their own research teams.
  • Be part of the RAEng Awardee Excellence Community.

Eligibility for Engineering Research Fellowships

  • Early-career researchers worldwide with a PhD, which was awarded (or the PhD has been unconditionally approved) no more than four years before the submission deadline.
  • There are no nationality and age restrictions for applicants, but Research Fellowships must be held at a UK higher education institution/university or a UK research organisation that is eligible to receive UKRI funding and in a department that can show it is capable of fully supporting an engineering-focused research project and researcher. In addition, the host institution must agree to provide the Research Fellow all the support normal for a permanent employee.
  • The host institution is responsible for securing all necessary work permits and related costs for the Research Fellows. Applications will be assessed on the assumption that applicants have obtained the necessary work permit in the UK.
